On her parent’s divorce: ‘I wanted a family so bad. I wanted to have my dad and my mom together. So it was really, it was really hard‘. Mommy Mandy: ‘It was very hard for her. And, she didn’t understand. You know, it was like destroying..
her family. All we could do is just say ‘I’m sorry but you will understand one day.’‘ Selena’s cousin Pricilla: ‘We had some really mean girls in our school and they would just be like ‘oh she’s on Barney, she’s a big baby’ and just tease her.’
On being a role model: ‘I never really said I want to be a role model. But then when it happened I was so down for it. Once I realized that I would have a little girl come to [me] and say she wants to be just like [me]. It [is] beautiful and I..
..accept it. I’m human, I’m not perfect. I make mistakes all the time, but I guess my job is to keep those mistakes to myself, which I’m already fine doing and just try to be the best I can be for those kids.’
Selena on fame: ‘This is a very superficial job. I sit in a chair for two hours and get hair and makeup done and talk about [myself] in interviews. That’s a very vain thing to do. And I do get caught up in it sometimes. I do.‘
Taylor Swift on the time she and Selena went to the University of Notre Dame to visit her brother: ‘So we fly to Notre Dame and decide we’re gonna fit in. We went and we got all this Notre..
..Dame gear so we’re like wearing the Notre Dame jacket and the Notre Dame visor and we learned that’s not how you fit in at college evidently. As we were walking around masses of people ended up following us. And yes they had to call security but it’s all we have that’s close to a normal college experience’”
